Solid, seamless, with an incredible sense of flow, the To Kalon Cabernet Sauvignon artfully achieves elegance with intensity. Dark wild berries, cocoa powder and a hint of licorice provide the aroma and flavor profile. Broad, full tannins create a velocity that drives the wine through its lengthy finish.
The flagship 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve is a more long-term effort yet is loaded with potential. Comming all from Mondavi’s To Kalon holdings and seeing an extended maceration and 18 months in new oak, its deep purple color is followed by rocking notes of blackberries, black cherries, smoke tobacco, black licorice, and crushed rocks. With a terrific sense of minerality, subtle background oak, full body, and impecable balance, hide bottle for 4-5 years and this beauty will cruise for 3 decades or so.
